Pupils had a day learning about topics outside the curriculum including talks and workshops.

Myton School held a Curriculum Freeze day when the curriculum was suspended to allow all pupils to get together in year groups.

Year 7 students listened to several invited speakers, including the Samaritans and representatives of religions and alternative beliefs.

Year 8 focussed on The Holocaust, with the main speaker being a representative from The Holocaust Educational Trust talking about their theme for 2015, Keeping the Memory Alive.

Year 9 spent the day with the Prison, Me, No Way! Trust (PMNW), who have been part of the curriculum programme at Myton School for 14 years.

The pupils took part in a variety of workshops and demonstrations led by the PMNW team, supported by the ambulance service, fire and rescue service, magistrates and the police.

Year 10 showed great team work as part of their day on Ryman’s Challenge. Year 11 pupils prepared for their exams, and Year 12 attended an UCAS (Undergraduate Courses at University and College) convention. Pupils in Year 13 had targeted revision sessions.

The school also hosted a pre-election Question Time attended by representatives from Warwick and Leamington for the Conservatives, Labour, Greens, UKIP and the Liberal Democrats, resulting in a lively discussion with sixth formers.
